I must admit we get a really good deal on a load here 75¢ to wash and 25¢ for 20 minutes to dry. But on our last trip to the house I didn't have the luxury of having the laundromat on our back lanai - I had to load everything up into the gas guzzling truck, drive to town and sit around for about 2 hours waiting for my $12 worth of quarters do their magic on 3 loads of laundry.
It was then that the brilliant idea hit me. When we get our own washer and dryer I should just keep using my quarters to wash my clothes! Hey, I've budgeted for it. Might as well continue and use those quarters to either pay for a repair (if needed) or towards buying a new washer or dryer down the line. Much better than trying to carve the money out of our savings....

That's the kind of math I LIKE!
Now we need to go hunting for a nice and big piggy bank!
